I always frequent Chinatown for its good food but the only time when I feel Chinatown truly comes alive is during the pre-Chinese New Year period. Normally, I try to avoid crowded places but over the weekend, my husband and I decided to venture to Chinatown to bask in the festive mood and revel in the merrymaking (besides squeezing our way through countless number of people which was the least fun part). Anyway, it was the husband’s first time in Singapore’s Chinatown during the festive season so I took the chance to give him a little tour at the same time.
We were really enthralled by what the festive bazaar had to offer and I was just amazed by the people who could buy just about anything for CNY. The queue at Lim Chee Guan was long enough to form a human millipede. CNY decorations and goodies were just flying off the shelves and more.
I shall let the pictures do the talking…
The festive bazaar will be on till CNY Eve this Thursday. There will be a countdown party with fireworks display on the same night too so if you’re thinking of going somewhere after your reunion dinner, head to Chinatown if you don’t mind the crowd! Gong Xi Fa Cai!
